GARDEN CITY, SC (WMBF) – A Garden City man is closer to his goal of owning a bed and breakfast after earning a fat tip at a Garden City restaurant.

“God is good…I'm still astonished,” said Jesse Brown who has served at Gulfstream Café for a couple weeks. Sunday night, the 31-year-old said he got a $1,000 tip from a couple who told him they wanted to see his dreams come true.

“They got really good vibes from me, and he wanted my dreams to come true,” Brown said of the man who signed the $69 check.

Brown said as soon as he saw the one with four zeros, he ran to check with his boss to make sure it was okay.

Brown said his boss had never seen a tip that large before.

Monday, Brown was back at work serving guests at the café.

My boss wanted to know what I was doing here today, Brown laughed.

When asked why he thought the couple left such a large tip, Brown said, “I'm a believer that good things happen to good people.”

“And I hope it was my service,” he added.
